Thread: Thread protectors

    Thread protectors

    I am having a clear out of thread protectors I've collected. I think used difficult to tell.

    4 X 1/2UNF Blued steel 16.3mm outside diameter, 12.5mm long, knurled although looks incomplete on one of them.

    1/2UNF Blued steel 21.2mm outside diameter, 12.5mm long, think this was to replace the plastic one on a Sako Quad varmint

    5/8UNF Stainless steel 21.2mm outside diameter, 15.5mm long

    All 7 delivered (paypal please) PM me

    Probably going to sound like a right div, my barrel is screw cut, but how do you work out what the thread is?

    depends if its factory threaded or not,if its factory the they normally have a normal thread or series ie 14x1 ,18x1 ,1/2 unf whatever which you can look up ,but if its been (gunsmithed) it might be something different ,so without knowing the rifle make we cant hazard a guess,

    what rifle/calibre?
    you can usually tell from the calibre and contour as there are only a small number of threads used

    if you have calipers run them across the top of the threads

    Depends on the barrel you have on your rifle, Heavy barrel mostly is 18x1 thread, sporting barrel is mostly 14x1 or 1/2'' UNF, use set of calipers to measure the outer diameter of your thread.
    Good luck

    It was "gun smithed" and its a Tikka T3 Stainlees Lite. What am I looking for if I measure as I have a set of calipers?

    as its a tikka t3 light it should be factory cut in M14X1, but if its shop cut it could be anything so its either trying a mod with a thread you know,or as others have said measure it ,on which i cant help as all mine are 1/2 unf,
